Hi, I'm Amandamarie, and I'm an intimate portrait photographer based out of North Carolina. I specialize in couples portraits and boudoir, and love photographing births and families as well. I'm a mother to 3 beautiful children, a wife to a handsome and supportive husband, and a lover of Jesus. When I'm not capturing memories with my camera, I'm either homeschooling my youngest, curled up on the couch with my favorite tea and doing some Bible journaling, adventuring somewhere with my family and friends, or snuggled up with my hubby watching Netflix (likely binge watching The Office). Being a mom and wife, I know just how important making memories with your loved ones is.  My goal is to create images that are personalized to you, holding emotion in a memorable way.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT:

Let's start with a heart to heart; coffee is on me! I want to learn about you and your love, what connects the two of you, and the love that you share. I will use all the information I learn to convey those feelings through your images. I don't simply capture moments, I strive to capture emotion. I want you to be able to hold a beautiful image in your hands and feel the magic and intimacy of your relationship.

We all know photographs tell a story, but I want you to feel yours!

Some Facts About Me:

  • I'm 31 and my birthday falls on Thanksgiving every 7 years.

  • My favorite teas are Wild Raspberry Hibiscus, and Mint.

  • I find a lot of my inspiration in things my children say, walking through bookstores, and my client's personal stories.

  • As a creative, I'm always learning new ways of expressing myself. Recently I've gotten my hands dirty with pottery making, tied up in crocheting, and I even attempted some metal smithing.

  • I love old films with Audrey Hepburn, Mary Tyler Moore, Fred Astaire, Lucille Ball, and all the greats; but I’m also down for binge watching The Office or Gilmore Girls! Wanna have a movie night?
